Enough potential banana skins for the top 2 here.

Northern Ireland - Healy in Belfast

Slovenia - Russia and Hiddink can tell

Other two, well...

I'd say Italy & Serbia. Italy isn't the powerhouse they were anymore and must bring some fresh blood in the team but they are still good enough to top the group. 2nd place will be between Serbia and Slovenia. Serbia wasn't that good at the World Cup (although they beat Germany) but I know a lot of their players and they have quality. It just didn't come out yet. I guess Slovenia must surprise me again like they did a few times already and qualify again.

We're just missing the finishing at this point, our strikers are freaking retards and can't score a goal to save their lifes. Serbia really should've put away Australia in the first half (six clear cut chances..) but as usual, the finishing was horrible and then, two months later, we lose to Greece because (despite 11-2 in chances)..yes, our strikers can't finish despite being three players on the goalline, they still put it wide

Slovenia deserves a lot of respect and are no pushover, they have some good players who can hurt Serbia, especially since Bane Ivanović is out for the first two games.

Btw, is there a chance we could borrow Ruud to learn giraffes, transvestites and other players how to finish?

Sorry zoric, we need Ruud for the big match versus San Marino this friday.

If I think of current Serbian strikers I think of Lazovic, Pantelic and Kezman. I know the latter one is a bad example though because he didn't do much after his PSV period and almost flopped everywhere else so he's probably done for but Lazovic should be a starter for your team I'd say? Pantelic did well for his short period at Ajax in our Mickey Mouse league but still didn't convince me that much. His reaction speed seems to be a bit slow and he annoys me a lot when he applaud his teammates, even for every bas pass they give to him. Did I forget some other Serbian strikers? Ow yeah... your coach should give Sulejmani a chance again. He had difficulties at Ajax but he's fast and skillful.

Italy and Serbia to go through. I don`t Slovenia going through even though I have much respect for them. Northern Ireland have shown some good improvement in the last two qualiers, but don`t see them scaring too much Italy and Serbia. I actually believe that the latter will take first place of the group and Italy as usually like drama will qualify in second place in the last minute

i think a shock may happen in this group and italy wont qualify. I definatly believe norn iron can beat them in belfast. Serbia could easily beat them home and away and Slovenia are very well disciplined team. Put into that a tricky away trip to Faroes for them who knows.

Serbia to top it, Slovenia and Italy to scrap for the second spot (hopefully northern ireland too)

still dont no where our goal threat is. Brunt mayby?

Novakovic is looking dangerous and if mac cauly lets koren cut inside again im gonna go mad!

I think Slovenia are looking more dangerous despite northern ireland having more of the ball.

Italy 1-0 down currently with estonia

0-1 FT

Heartbreaking, Slovenia created lots of chances, simply couldnt score.

This loss means we have to beat Italy/Serbia to go through. Thats difficult, but not impossible.

All respect to Norhern Ireland, their defense was excellent.

But 3rd place, what I think would rise us to Pot 3, is still in our own hands.

Faroe 0 - 3 Serbia
Estonia 1 - 2 italy
Slovenia 0 - 1 N.Ireland

Norn irons first away win in 15 and first goal scored in 7. Cory Evans is looking good, not just the goal which Fen is right was soft, but he looked comfortable on the ball, passed well and worked hard.

Please, Slovenia will suck this qualifications.

What the **** is with Novakovic Henry style ? Man, youre not even third the man Henry was, get your socks off your knees you dumb mother...

This came as no surprise to me, as I had a bet on NIR to win. This is Slovenia. Our players are big stars now.
